pirate radio around the world

let’s get the party started

goodness me, she’s got a blog

yes, at long last the newsdiva jumps into the 21st century and attempts a public forum.  if you’re here and reading this, first of all — wow! thanks!

please bear with me while i figure out what this brave new (for me) world is all about.  there was no such thing as a computer in school where i grew up.  this is an achievement in and of itself.  for the 10-year-old in me, it’s almost like something out of ‘star wars.’

being philosophically-minded, of course i have a goal, a statement of purpose, a mission, e.g., what i want this blog to do or be about.  obviously there will be lots of links (yay!) and no doubt some commentary.  i welcome honest discourse based on personal reasoning … but i reserve the right to delete and block trolls. 

i also want to include some video … if i can … we’ll see what the universe presents. 

so … okay, i think that’s going to be it for now.  let’s see if i can figure out how to publish this thing.

Hello world!
